For our first IoT project I'm looking into the Intel Edison.
One of my colleagues has warned me about Yocto (he has experience with it on a BBB), which is as far as I know the only OS supported for the Edison. It's great when it works, but a pain in the behind to set-up. Do other developers share his sentiment and know a viable alternative for Yocto? Or should I dismiss his experience as 'BBB-only' and get started with it anyway?
There's plenty of *nix experience around, but only one with Yocto. We can't spare the resources to take weeks just to get the OS running.
